Medical Bridges One People, One World
Just after Memorial Day weekend, Bobby Dees, General Manager of Saks, and over 80 supporters at the ever fabulous Saks shoe department on Tuesday, May 27 kicked off the 2014 One People, One World Gala benefiting Medical Bridges that is scheduled to be held on September 27, 2014 at Hilton Post Oak.
The Gala Chairman, Dr. Kelli Cohen Fein was under the weather so Chairman Barbara Van Postman, along with Honorary Chairman Margaret Alkek Williams, circulated and visited as the band played and guests sipped and nibbled, to talk about the upcoming event and all that Medical Bridges is doing to continue bridging the healthcare gap, connecting those who have with those who hope. Donating surplus medical supplies around the globe impacts so many lives.
Community Honorees, Drs. Mary Ann and Bob Wilkins, and Corporate Honoree Chevron, represented by Joni Baird, Manager, Houston Policy, Government and Public Affairs, were applauded. President & CEO Dorothy Bolettieri stressed the importance, today more than ever, of the vital support to these clinics.
Seen in the crowd: Mary Ann and David McKeithan, Leisa Holland-Nelson, Joe Amberson, Jim Daniel, Karina and Carlos Barbieri, Jeff Thomas, Hayne Blakely and Minnette Boesel.
